Changes to School Site Hours and Safety Protocols

As you know, the number of COVID-positive cases in our community has risen dramatically over the past couple of months. As such, we have been asked to further evaluate our office practices, number of staff on campus, distributions, and interactions with the public. When we reviewed our practices, we realized we needed to tighten things up just a bit. To be as cautious as possible, the following changes will be in place:


  • Limit the number of staff in the office
  • Encourage staff members to work from home, when possible
  • Reduce the office in-person visitor hours
  • Eliminate all non-essential, non-academic distributions to students


In addition to these changes, we need to take one more step regarding Valentine's Day. As much as we love the holiday, the cards, the candy, and all the fun that comes along with it, we have to respect the health and safety of our staff, students, and families. This year, we cannot accept any donations or deliveries from our families for Valentine's Day. Additionally, we cannot accept any gifts on behalf of teachers or staff at this time. However, feel free to have your child email a digital card to their teacher as we know they love hearing my their students.


You all did an incredible job of showering our staff with gifts and kindness before the holidays. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of our families. Thank you for all that you did to care for our staff. We know everyone was so touched and feels very much appreciated.


It is our sincere hope that we will be able to remove some of these restrictions and changes as time goes on. But for now, if we have any hope of reopening and getting our students back to campus, we have to do everything we can to limit the spread. Thank you for your grace, patience, and understanding. We greatly appreciate our Lions family.


Warmly,

Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Nielsen, and Mr. Stein

Caring for iPads

We strongly encourage setting clear expectations for iPad care when used in the home. Please ensure your child does the following:


  • Keep your iPad in its protective case at all times.
  • Carry your iPad with two hands.
  • Keep your iPad away from liquids or foods.
  • Handle your iPad only when your hands are clean.
  • When placing your iPad on a table or desk, make sure that the iPad is positioned so that it is completely on the table.
  • Exercise care when inserting and removing cords and cables from your iPad.
  • Avoid putting pressure on the iPad screen.
  • Avoid leaving your iPad in a vehicle.
  • Keep your iPad away from extreme temperatures, direct sunlight or ultraviolet light for extended periods of time. Extreme heat or cold may cause damage to the iPad. If your iPad has been in a cold environment for a long period of time, let it warm up before using it. Keep the iPad away from dampness or wet weather such as rain, snow, and fog.
  • Do not leave iPads on the floor as they may be easily stepped or crawled on.
  • Families signed a liability agreement assuming responsibility for any theft, loss, or damage that occurs to the iPad (unless device insurance was purchased).
